Listening to Trouble Sleep Yanga Wake Am, the Feli Kuti song covered on Red Hot + Riot by Taj Mahal and Baaba Mal. Judging by some of the comments on YouTube it seems as if a lot of people prefer the original version but I love this cut. I heard it for the first time listening to Red, Hot + Riot a few years back and it really sank under my skin. Taj Mahal’s voice has the same affect as a really good quality scotch that slides down your throat and spreads straight into your bloodstream, radiating warmth throughout the body. On a day like today it really hits the spot.
